We are  continuing to conduct tryouts for the club.  If you are interested in being a part of the team then please contact us here:

  • 16 years old at the time of the tryout.
  • Players who make the NPSL team do not have fees for things such as housing (if necessary), travel, equipment, and other costs.
  • Open Tryout = Yes
    Invitational Tryout = No
    Facilities, staff, equipment, etc are all costs involved with these events and in order to give everyone a chance to compete, we need to charge.
  • No. Players have to try out to make the team each year – even highly qualified former players from last season are expected to tryout and compete. The same way the pros do it. This is about who can execute in the best interest of the club and the team.
  • Technical abilities
    Tactical knowledge
    Passsion
    Other specific characteristics we are seeking is a person with set goals who is relentless in their pursuit, someone who understands they are a part of something bigger than themselves, and that if all sacrifice for the club then everyone has the opportunity to win.
  • If you’re in high school or college and not in-season then, yes.
    Before the Spring season starts, you’re good.  For TN, the TSSAA shows 1st official HS practice as 2/13 but you can confirm with them  at (615) 889-6740.
    College players can confirm with their coach, NCAA, and/or governing body.
    We hold tryouts typically around vacation times so players are able to attend.
  • Absolutely not! You should play for your school if they are in-season in the Spring. You tryout now and will not start training with us until your season is over or when you are eligible according to your state rules.
  • HS
    HS & Club ball work very well and if you network then you can get some schools to make an offer.  However, there are no US Academies for (either MLS or independent) for U16/U18 players in the greater Mid-South region (TN, AR, MS, AL, KY) which means limited exposure and training.  Additionally for U16/U18 players, most clubs don’t compete in huge showcases such as Disney which has one of the greatest concentration of coaches evaluating potential college recruits.  You have to move to a place like Dallas, KC, Houston, Atlanta, etc in order to be a part of the Academy system & get those opportunities to be seen by more schools or even consideration for the pros.
    College
    In terms of current college players, if you want to move up to a bigger school or even get some pro eyes on you, then you must be seen.  Last year one of our players, was at a community school.  Following the summer after being trained by Memphis City coaches and playing in big matches, he received 4 scholarship offers.  He’s gone from a community college to a D2 school.  Another player was just on trial at a Europa League team this Fall and has received offers to other US colleges as well.  There are many other examples on our 2016 Review page and many more that need to be added or updated.
    Memphis City is a member of a national league – its exposure is on a national and even international platform.  This means more publicity to bigger colleges.  Additionally, instead of waiting until Fall, you get a compressed amount of time in a professional atmosphere preparing you for greater things.  You will learn to play faster, make better decisions, become stronger, etc…  You train & play with top talent in the country.  To get better you have to play with the best.
    The conclusion is that if you are serious about this game and want the best possible either in terms of training, exposure, games, etc… then this is the sort of atmosphere that is necessary to make that happen.
